"There's a lot of cabality going on in the cinemas. I mean, they have a list of names that if you don't use so so person, 'we cannot accept your movie," she said.

"These things are the reasons the industry is really not growing the way it should grow. But, in every other area, we have very good writers these days, we have dynamic directors and producers. We have the top-notch equipments."

"We have a lot of young people doing good movies, but the cabality is just spoiling everything. The major issue is the cabality. If only these cabals can just open up a bit for the crowd to come in."


A producer and actress, George is popular for movies like "One Good Man," "Endtime, " "Beyond Blood," "OutKast," Finding Goodluck" among others.
